Suggestion to Add a Spell Check option on the Summary box

    I was looking over someone's profile page the other day and noticed a misspelled word in one of their summaries. It was clear what the author was trying to say so I just moved on to another hub, happily oblivious. Then today, I was writing a new hub and got to the summary part and worried that I might have a typo there.

    That's when I discovered there is not a spellchecker above the box like the other capsules have. How come?

    Oh, sure. I know how to cut the selection and paste it into a Word document and use that spellchecker. No problem with that.

    Just wondering, since this is more or less a required fill-in-the-box deal.

    It's a good suggestion! I'm not sure how simple or hard it would be to build that in, though.

    Some browsers have built-in spell checkers that address things being typed into text entry fields, so depending on what browser a Hubber is using, the spell check feature might be redundant.

    At any rate, I'll see what we might be able to do with regard to adding that in. big_smile

      I've never used a spell checker because of that - my FF provides it all the time.  It's not always right, but at least it makes me look twice when the squiggly red lines cover the page. smile

        Hi Wilderness,
        I bet your browser isn't an antique like mine! LOL I keep getting the message, "You may want to upgrade your browser to enhance your" bla bla bla. That won't be anytime soon. Hahahha

      Thank you, Simone. It was just a curiosity thing. I'm sure you have a few other priorities.

    I didn't even know about a spellchecker when creating a hub. How do I access it?
